Trout Amandine is a classic French dish that pairs the delicate flavor of trout with the nuttiness of almonds. Enjoy creating this elegant and simple dish with the following recipe and handy tips.


  • Dish name: Trout Amandine

  • Cuisine: French-inspired

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes

  • Cooking time: 10-12 minutes

  • Yield: Serves 2


  • 2 trout fillets, skin on

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, for dusting

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped

  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Season the trout fillets with salt and pepper. Lightly dust with flour, shaking off any excess.

  2. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.

  3. Place the trout fillets in the skillet, skin-side down, and cook until the skin is crispy, about 4-5 minutes.

  4. Carefully flip the fillets and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through.

  5. Remove the trout and set aside, keeping it warm.

  6. In the same skillet, add the remaining butter and the sliced almonds. Cook until the almonds are golden brown.

  7. Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice, careful of the splattering.

  8. Spoon the almond mixture over the trout fillets and garnish with chopped parsley.

  9. Serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Skin Crisping: Ensure your pan is hot before placing the fillets to get a crispy skin without overcooking the delicate flesh.

  • Butter Watch: Brown the butter to a nutty fragrance but be careful not to burn it. If the butter starts browning too quickly, lower the heat.

  • Almond Attention: Keep a close eye on the almonds as they can go from perfectly toasted to burnt in seconds.

  • Sauce Savvy: Add the lemon juice off the heat to avoid the butter splattering and to retain the fresh lemon flavor.

  • Freshness First: Use fresh trout if possible; the better the quality of your fish, the better the final dish will taste.

  • Flour Function: The flour helps to create a slightly crunchy exterior while keeping the trout moist inside. A light coat is all that's needed.

  • Serving Sense: Trout Amandine is perfect with a side of buttery potatoes and steamed green beans or asparagus for a balanced meal.

Succulent trout with a brown butter almond sauce is a timeless dish sure to enchant your palette. With these tips and the simple recipe, Trout Amandine can be a delightful centerpiece for an intimate dinner or a special occasion
